Build better roads in Michigan

I am not for eliminating the prevailing wage here in Michigan, what I am for is getting better roads and bridges here in our state. I have traveled extensively in Europe and the climate is about the same, however the road construction is superior to what we have here in our state. To me, here in Michigan, we construct roads with a very short life span. Also our maintenance programs leave a lot to be desired. It almost seems that we design the roads to fail in a very short period of time so that we can pay for a resurfacing project over and over again, it might be beneficial to have some of our planning and engineering employees take a trip to Europe and visit their roads and some off the ongoing construction projects, they might pick up some new and better methods and help the projects here in Michigan.
